About Darryl

Darryl is the managing partner of the Billyard Insurance Group Alta Vista location in Ottawa. Darryl opened the BIG Alta Vista with the goal of providing a one-stop shop for clients to take care of their personal, commercial, and life insurance needs. As managing partner, Darryl is excited to lead a team of brokers who are eager to serve their clients and communities. 

With more than eight years of experience in the insurance industry, Darryl has been consistently recognized as a top sales producer and award-winning insurance professional who has received numerous accolades for his outstanding customer service. Darryl is both a personal and commercial lines broker specializing in four unique market segments: real estate investors, RCMP and Ottawa Police personnel, experienced and mature motorcyclists, and Chinese/Mandarin-speaking clients.

Darryl loves people and is known in the community as a networker and educator. He takes great pleasure in learning about each client’s needs, finding solutions to help protect what’s important to clients, and giving them the peace of mind that they are properly insured. Taking care of each client and earning their loyalty is what brings him the greatest satisfaction. In fact, many clients have become friends over the years. 

An alumnus of both Carleton University and Griffith University (Australia), Darryl earned an Honours degree in Anthropology and an Advanced Diploma in Mass Communications, respectively. He is also a military veteran who served two and a half years in the Singapore Army and 11 years with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) Pipes & Drums as drum sergeant and principal percussionist. He has also been recognized for his efforts in sponsoring the Bikers Against Child Abuse (BACA) motorcycle rallies. 

When Darryl isn’t taking care of his clients, you can find him dedicating a few hours each week to coaching/mentoring youth or leading his pipe band at various community parades. Darryl is actively involved in the pipe band community as an emcee and drum major for numerous Scottish festivals and highland games. In his spare time, Darryl is an avid traveler and creates whisky reviews on his YouTube channel.
